SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Spartanburg County deputies have arrested a man who they say hit his girlfriend with a workbook from his anger management class during an argument, and she cut his arm with a boxcutter.

A sheriff’s office incident report said 22-year-old Sheelah Thompson and her 23-year-old boyfriend Tyler Ford were fighting about their relationship Monday night at their Spartanburg apartment when Ford rolled up the book and hit his girlfriend on the cheek.

Deputies say Ford had a deep cut on his arm. Thompson told an officer she cut her boyfriend because he tried to strangle her. Ford told a deputy his girlfriend cut him because she was angry after he hit her with the book.

Both were charged with criminal domestic violence. It wasn’t known if either suspect had a lawyer.
